Specs: Windows 7
A developer at my work has asked me to create an A record.

He has asked me to point an IP he has purchased which is from AWS to our company which would be Is this possible from our external websites DNS?

I could understand if there is a function on the AWS side but he says it should be possible from our external website management GUI?

I wouldn't have thought this possible otherwise I could point any IP you our domain couldn't I?

Any help is appreciated.

His certainty has got me doubting myself.
